Trump Administration Wants Immigrant’s Social Media Information & House Provides Path to Citizenship for Dreamers
Trump Administration Wants Immigrant’s Social Media Information
Effective May 31, 2019, the Department of State updated the nonimmigrant and the immigrant visa applications. The updated forms collect social media identifiers, which will be used for screening purposes. The passwords to access the social media accounts will not be requested. All nonimmigrant and immigrant visa categories are affected, except A-1, A-2, C-2, C-3 (except attendants, servants, or personal employees of accredited officials), G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4, NATO-1, NATO-2, NATO-3, NATO-4, NATO-5, and NATO-6.
House Provides Path to Citizenship for Dreamers
The US House of Representatives passed H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019. This bill would create permanent protections for Dreamers, participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED). The bill would provide protection from deportation and create a path to citizenship to over 2 million Dreamers and TPS and DED recipients.
Before becoming law, the bill would have to be passed by the US Senate and signed by the President.
